It's a rare but ponderous thing to see, but our favorite variation is a road car turned into a racecar which in turn results in a road car.<br /><br />It's the formula adopted by <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/ferrari/">Ferrari</a> to turn the 360 Modena into the 360 Challenge and then back into the 360 Challenge Stradale - a formula which it has followed with the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/ferrari+430+scuderia/">430 Scuderia</a> and <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/ferrari+458+speciale/">458 Speciale</a>, and which <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/lamborghini/">Lamborghini</a> and <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/maserati/">Maserati</a> followed with Stradale versions of their production-based racecars as well. And now it looks like <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/aston+martin/">Aston Martin</a> could be following the same.<br /><br />Speaking with longtime Aston Martin chief Dr. Ulrich Bez, <em>Autocar</em> reports that the British automaker is considering a roadgoing version of the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/aston+martin+vantage+gt3/">Vantage GT3</a> to slot in above the <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/tag/aston+martin+v12+vantage+s/">V12 Vantage S</a>. The most extreme version of the sportscar yet could benefit from competition-derived aerodynamics, a 6.0-liter V12 engine upgraded to around 600 horsepower and a good 200 pounds trimmed off the curb weight.<br /><br />Considering that the current V12 Vantage S can already hit 60 in 3.7 seconds and tops out at 205 miles per hour, the GT3-derived road car could prove one of the fastest cars Aston has ever built.<p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/11/10/aston-martin-v12-vantage-s-gt3-supercar/">Aston Martin considering GT3-derived Vantage supercar</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sun, 10 Nov 2013 11:02:00 EST.
